The RMG.Project - komputormusik [ISA1501]
The RMG.Project (Random Music Generator Project) consists of lloyd17, an old p2 computer, various encoders and encoding methods, many books (literature) and a bunch of free software available on the internet. The RMG Project was created in an attempt to force a computer to create melodic audio with as little creative input from the user as possible. This project is part of a larger experiment, the eventual goal of which is to create an autonomous music creating machine, whose various inputs (senses) directly influence the music created. Various methods and techniques have been used to simulate randomness, or at least to remove user input whenever possible. The tracks are ordered in a chronological fashion in order to help the listener visualize the progression of interaction between user, machine, and the various methods used to extract audio information from non-audio input.
